Is body in Florida backyard tied to triple homicide?

January 7, 2019

TARPON SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) — A body has been located in the backyard of a Florida home and authorities say it may be connected to a triple homicide.

Police arrested 25-year-old Shelby Nealy Friday after they caught him with a car stolen from a Florida home where a couple and their son were found dead. Their daughter — the man’s wife — remains missing. Nealy was taken into custody in Ohio.

Investigators identified the victims as 71-year-old Richard Ivancic; his wife, 59-year-old Laura Ivancic; and their son, 25-year-old Nicholas Ivancic. Nealy’s wife, their 21-year-old daughter, Jamie Ivancic, is missing under what police called “suspicious circumstances.”

Police said they fear she is a victim of foul play.

Pasco County Sheriff’s officials said Sunday they’d found a body but released no other details pending the medical examiner’s report. The Tampa Times reported it was linked to the Ivancic investigation.
